Islamic Group Files Political Activity Complaint with IRS for DVD Distribution

We previously blogged that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) had filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against a charity that distributed a DVD titled "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West."  CAIR alleges that the multi-million copy distribution was intended to support Senator McCain's campaign, in violation of federal election laws.  Perhaps not surprisingly, CAIR has also announced that it filed a similar complaint with the IRS.  The DVD's distributor was the Clarion Fund, which describes itself as "a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to educate Americans about issues of national security."
